Description:
Vladimir Ashkenazy is best known in the States for his phenomenal piano playing -- though the Dutch have a different take on him. For over twenty-five years, this Russian-born virtuoso has brought incendiary performances of orchestral classics to the Netherlands -- as a conductor. Tonight, this extraordinary musician is on the conductor's podium with the world-class Netherlands Radio Philharmonic and an all-Sibelius program.
